Manpower authority sets measures to prevent violation of the labor law

Thursday, August 9, 2018

The Public Authority for Manpower said that the punishment if the law is violated will start with partially suspending the employer’s file all the way to permanent closure and going to court. The authority said the concerned department can suspend the employer’s file partially, while authorizing the director to temporary lift the suspension to give the employer time to correct the situation, then the file can be suspended again if the reasons for the suspension are not corrected.

The authority has the right, if violations reach a grave level to the point of affecting public interest and harming Kuwait’s reputation, to close the file either temporally or permanently based on the gravity of the violation (lying, cheating or forgery of documents submitted to the authority).

The authority banned employers from closing the work premises if there are workers registered on the license, and if this is not adhered to, the inspection department has the right to suspend the file until the violation is removed. In case the violation is repeated, the addition of new labor will be suspended for a minimum of three months.

This is the story of most of the companies in Kuwait specially the Contracting companies in Oil Sector. very few are treating employee properly. I was working in a project of al-khadda co. which was facing financial problems and the contract was terminated before time and we were left with 2 months pending salaries and other amount.
i don''t know when we will get our pending amount or will we ever get any amount from the company. this sad situation should not occur.

Do i need a labor law specialised advocate for that or is there a public prosecutor to help? can we submit a case via ministry of labor ?

We know the plight of Kharafi National employees. Many workers and staffs who left KN are still in the dark. Majority left Kuwait without their ''service benefits'' which is their only saving for the rest of their life !!! Because due to old age, now they cannot find a new job. It seems, the Companies with ''Vaastha'' don''t care the rules.
